Bean flours are hard to find - you may make your own using a blender or suitable grinder ahead of time. Texture is spot on, pleasant flavor - you'd swear it's wheat but it's better, not bitter - good rise!

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3/4 cup almond or soy milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil (or ghee)
  • 1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon molasses (or compliant sweetener)
  • 2 teaspoons soya lecithin (or other compliant lecithin)
  • 1 ½ teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 cup white or canellini bean flour
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • ½ cup golden flax meal (or compliant flour)
  • ½ cup arrowroot flour
  • 1 teaspoon honey (or compliant sugar for yeast)
  • 1 Tablespoon yeast
How to make it:
  1. Mix together warm water, yeast and honey.
  2. Set aside until foamy.
  3. Combine dry ingredients in a small bowl.
  4. Combine remaining wet ingredients in a large bowl.
  5. Add yeast mixture.
  6. Add dry to the wet, beating hard for about a minute. You will see the batter change and become smooth.
    (Consistency needs to be right: batter that is too thick will not rise - too thin it will rise and then fall. If it looks like a too-thick cake batter then it is probably just about right!)
  7. Line the bottom of the pan with wax paper, lightly oil the pan.
  8. Gluten-free baking tends to stick more than regular wheat flour.
  9. To rise put the pan in the oven with the oven light on....and cover the pan with a towel.
  10. Let rise for about an hour until loaves round over the top of the pan.
  11. Bake for 45 minutes at 350'F - or until tops are nicely browned.
  12. This recipe makes one regular size loaf.
